One year ago today...

I was on SparkPeople today looking at fitness videos when I realized that today is the ONE YEAR ANNIVERSARY of my commitment to a healthy lifestyle. One year ago, I stepped on the scale at a Weight Watcher's meeting and weighed 333 lbs., my all time highest weight. I have been on a journey ever since. I have stumbled and fell on my face along the way, but I have NEVER given up. I will not give up. I am determined to get to 160 lbs, and I know I will do it.

I stole this from my friend Heather on SparkPeople...

To Achieve your Dreams Remember your ABC's.....

Avoid negative sources, people, places, things and habits.
Believe in yourself.
Consider things from every angle.
Don't give up and don't give in.
Enjoy life today, yesterday is gone, tomorrow may never come.
Family and friends are hidden treasures, seek them and enjoy their riches.
Give more than you planned to.
Hang on to your dreams.
Ignore those who try to discourage you.
Just do it.
Keep trying no matter how hard it is
Love yourself first and most.
Make it happen.
Never lie, cheat or steal….always strike a fair deal.
Open your eyes & see things as they really are.
Practice makes perfect.
Quitters never win & winners never quit.
Read, study and learn about everything important in your life.
Stop procrastinating.
Take control of your own destiny.
Understand yourself in order to better understand others.
Visualize it.
Want it more than anything.
You are unique..nothing can replace YOU.
Zero in on your target and go for it.
